Jody Latham nursing broken heart after Tulisa leaves

London: Actor Jody Latham was reportedly heartbroken when singer Tulisa Contostavlos left him for footballer Danny Simpson.

"He thought he had a future with Tulisa. She said she wanted to get married and have children in the near future. They spent a week together in secret in her flat in London and barely left each other`s sides," a website has quoted a source as saying.

The singer is currently said to be dating Simpson whom she met through mutual friends in Manchester.

"He would have done anything for her - but then she just turned cold on him. From getting 30 text messages a day from her, he suddenly started to get only a couple."

"And then she went to Manchester and said she was staying in with friends so she couldn`t meet up with him. Jody is gutted, he feels like an idiot," the source said.

Latham and Contostavlos met in October during the shooting of her single "Sight of you" where he played her on screen boyfriend.
